We are looking forward to what 2020 will bring -- and celebrating our 125th Anniversary! -- while being enormously proud of the work we've done this past year. To that end, we are delighted to share our 2018-19 Annual Report with you.

This past year has been a challenging one for our agency with both the expansion of our Irene M. Hunt School for students with emotional, behavioral, and/or mental health challenges and the closure of our ReStart substance use recovery program. Even with those changes – or because of them – our agency remains resilient and eager to take on new projects. What our programs offer to children and young adults from all walks of life is so critical to their well-being and security, both now and in the future.

Alongside client testimonials and an acknowledgement of our very generous supporters, we also wanted to share a closer look at an aspect of each one of our programs to help you understand our services more fully and the impact our programs have in the community with your help. 

Thank you for your ongoing commitment to our agency and the young people that we serve!
